    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Making the most of Dining Dollars, in 2 days!!

The last week of the semester has sprung out from nowhere and suddenly, I find myself in a dilemma. I have about $50 dining dollars left (I know, I couldn’t believe it either!) and these will be void if I don’t spend them by the end of this week (tomorrow maybe?!). Other students are finding themselves in similar or worse positions and I couldn’t help but share my spending stratagem:

  1. Snacks for the road: If you will be traveling for long, you might want a snack or two to shorten the distance. I figured that I might as well stock up on some snacks and pretty much went to Storm’s Den to grab a reasonable amount of snacks, leaving me with enough money for the other items on this list.
  2. New batteries! Yes, you can buy new batteries for your calculator in Storm’s. It happened that my good old calculator was running on its last drop of battery power. So I purchased a new set of batteries and was left with enough money for the next item.
  3. Hello old friend, wanna grab a meal?!” Food has a way of strengthening friendships. So, I got some food from Storm’s for a friend and even offered to buy lunch to one of the employees at Storm’s. They ended up giving me an extra chicken tender. Go figure! Even after this, I was left with enough money for the following last item.
  4. Anything that is useful and costs less to fit in under the already exhausted vault! This may include nail cutters, socks, and more snacks!
